Its April already.  How time flies.  It’ll be Summer Movie Season before we know it!  In this week’s rundown of all things online, we have heaps of nerd news, the best of this year’s online April Fool’s Day gags, and of course cats.  Cause internet. Every year, websites and companies with a strong tech and web presence pull out all the stops to trump their competitors and offer the very best April 1st gag ever.  If you didn’t have time to scour the net, no need to worry, our friends at Film School Rejects collected the best in one place. Know any nerds?  Wanna make their heads explode?  Show them this picture.

Sure, it's kind of old.  But still great!

Fans of horror have an new Evil Dead to look forward to this weekend.  LA horror fans who’d rather live the action can start booking tickets now for the Great Horror Campout.  Sorry SF, Chi Town, and the Big apple. While not quite horror, the folks at Gritty Reboots have put their spin on Calvin and Hobbes.  And we gotta say, we’d watch the heck out of it!

There was so much news for TV fans this week.  History’s epic series “Vikings” was renewed for a second season.  As the 50th anniversary of BBC’s “Dr. Who” approaches, anglophiles scour tumblr and Twitter feeds for any news.  And boy has there been some.  Finally, rejoice never nudes!  Netflix has announced the date for new episodes of “Arrested Development!” This week, the entertainment world saw the loss of two incredibly influential people.  Carmine Infantino and Roger Ebert.  Infantino helped usher in Comic’s Silver Age and created some of the most recognizable superheroes and villains of all time.

Screen Shot 2013-04-05 at 1.04.31 PM Comics Alliance ran a great tribute here. Ebert is synonymous with Modern Film criticism.  Of course he was known to be wrong about films sometimes too. ;)

Last week, we at Click christened our new Office Digs with a party for some of our clients and friends.  If you weren’t there, you can check out the pics here. We’ll leave you with some cat cosplay.  You’re welcome.  Happy weekend!


Our Video Gamer friends on the East Coast (and those who ventured there from the West Coast) are enjoying PAX East.  Half the Click Staff is fully embroiled in March Madness.  And all of us have made it successfully to Friday!  With all that in mind, let’s dive into this week’s Click On This!

Sometimes it can be difficult to keep calm and carry on.  For those struggling, here’s a helpful of 22 things that happy people do differently.  Definitely food for thought.  Speaking of food AND thought, we discovered this not-quite-safe-for-work (due to language) blog: Thug Kitchen.  It’s definitely worth checking out for laughs and recipes.

Also worth checking out is today’s epic Shirt Woot offering.

Yeah.  It glows in the dark!

Yeah. It glows in the dark!

While everyone at Click can get excited for nerdery like this shirt.  But when half the staff started talking about our brackets this week, the other half was all, “What are sp-orts?”  While it specifically deals with Football and not Basketball, this fantastic Penny Arcade strip takes the foreign seeming sp-orts and makes the concept relatable to our nerdier brethren.

While this is only a fan created piece, this epic CG poster from Greg Thomas makes us squee at the thought of Masters Of The Universe Legos!

Speaking of nerd fantasies, here’s two great ideas.  The first adds fuel to the nerd rumor from a while back that Peter Jackson woud like to direct an Episode of Doctor Who.  While some performers work for peanuts, Jackson seems willing to take a Dalek as his payment.  Screencrush makes a compelling case for why Jennifer Lawrence is the best choice to play Young Han Solo in the spinoff film from Lucasfilm and Disney.

For those tiring of Post-It Notes, Google announced via Blog this week that their new note taking app is now readily available for smart phones.  Take that pad and paper!

Those of you in the LA area with time on your hands tomorrow, should head up to Collector’s Paradise in Winnetka for an awesome Star Wars signing featuring Gabriel Hardman and Corinna Bechko.

Finally we’ll leave you with this awesome video from the new series Man At Arms, where a talented weapon-smith makes practical, fully realized versions of famous nerd weapons.  In the past he’s fashioned Finn’s sword, Batman’s Batarangs, and Odd Job’s killer bowler.  This week sees him tackle the famous Power Sword He-man wields.


Happy weekend!


It’s the holiday season and greeting cards are flying around like an East Coast snow flurry.  We had as much fun creating our card as many others, but of all the ones we received, our friends at Geeks of Doom have given our inner geek the bear hug it deserves this Christmas.

This Christmas Day, Santa brings you the gift of the Dr. Who Christmas Special on BBC America. We must have been very, very good this year.
